Hi! Hoping someone can have a good suggestion for me here!
My fiancee & I were supposed to get married this past May in Mexico. Not only was that cancelled, but so were our first and second reschedule! We have now moved our wedding to July 2021, locally, not a destination anymore. Our new venue only holds 120 people and we originally invited 250. Luckily, we were expecting 115 in Mexico so that worked out okay. However, everyone else that was originally invited now cannot be. We wold like to extend the invite to those people to come to the church portion of the wedding only. My parents will have their house open with appetizers/cookies/drinks after the church for those guests before they meet us at the hall for pictures. My fiancee & I, & our bridal party will be going to another location for pictures before heading to the venue for family pictures.
Any suggestions on how to word an invite for them. We were thinking something along the lines of an explanation of downsizing due to covid and the location changing but we want to share our special day with them.
Thanks in advance!
